Fragment-Based Drug Design Strategies

ACS Webinars

New approaches are essential to deliver drugs and tool compounds against increasingly difficult targets. Rather than screening millions of drug-sized compounds, fragment-based drug discovery starts with libraries of just a few thousand very small molecules, or fragments. This enables a more thorough exploration of chemical space to find better starting points for lead optimization. Join us as Dr. Dan Erlanson explains all this and more in the third session of our symposium.

What You Will Learn

  • Why fragment-based lead discovery can be useful
  • How to find fragments—and avoid pitfalls
  • What you can do with fragments
